Volunteer Information

Camp Joy relies on volunteers all summer! We are always looking for individuals who want to give back to the community. Our volunteers should be at least 14 years of age and have reliable transportation. Volunteers are required to complete the volunteer enrollment form and supplemental Camp Joy volunteer registration form. We request that volunteers can commit to at least one full week of camp which can be selected on the registration form. Volunteer duties vary based on the needs for that day so flexibility is a must!
